Make old playlists read-only in iTunes

Our dance group will be playing music using a mac g4 running iTunes version 9.3. Each week we create a new playlist on the fly as we are dancing that contains the individual tracks we are playing. So the playlist is completely editable the night we use it.

For any future week, we still want to be able to see the past playlists since we may look up a good track or see which version of a particular song we played. However, for reference purposes, we don't want to accidentally change anything about the prior weeks' playlists. As some of our DJs are not as computer savvy as others, this also prevents them from making mistakes.

Is it possible to somehow mark a Playlist as Read Only so that it is not accidentally changed? It's okay if the user can flip it from Read Only to Edit; we just want a way so that it isn't done accidentally.

Thank you in advance.

I believe the only way is to export the playlist and archive it. The playlists in iTunes are in one big XML file so there is not an option to disable changes on the one playlist only.
